“Good Business Hotel”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

This is a functional hotel in a good location in Beijing. The rooms are fine with more than enough space. There is a German themed restaurant as part of the hotel which serves a decent pint. The breakfast was ok without being special. The staff were efficient enough. All in all a reasonable place to stay.

This is a business hotel in a business area, the breakfast was amazing - great choice in the buffet ( even can have chickens feet with salad! )
The room was fine, very clean and lots of space.
The Blue Frog next door is a great place to eat especially on a Monday as burgers are buy one get one free as are drinks, nothing else close by that we could see apart fram usual American suspects !

Time there Sept 2012.This was the first hotel we stayed in on our 15 day tour of China with Oriental Travel Company. I will rate this first and then at the end put all the other hotels we stayed at so those can be checked. as there doesnt seem to be anywhere to rate tours I will do it here. Everything we did was arranged for us and even though we were dubious as if everything would go alright it did. Flights that were arranged for us were Emirites, brilliant changed flights in Dubai but stayed in the same terminal so easy. Arrived beijing and met by our tour manager Harry Wu who was a star all the way through, he put us in a taxi to the hotel where we booked in not to much problem but not much english but everyone was polite.The room we had was lovely and all touches there slippers,toileterities and kettle (careful dont use the big bottles of water expensive) 2 small ones provided for cleaning teeth etc every day.The beds were so comfy with mattress and pillows really nice. The hotel was reallylovely. had to swipe your key card to get to your floor in the lift -good idea.Had a look in the swimming pool and leisure centre it was beautiful but we didnt have time to use it. Breakfast english, chinese, continental or japanese very nice maybe not as hot as we are used to but lovely. Didnt have any other meals here as we were on tour. 3 nights here ate at the Blue Frog cafe next door one night which was really good cost about £22 with 2 beers.Traffic is heavy in all chinese towns and you seem to take your life in your hands when crossing the road, traffic just goes round you. I wont go through all we did with the tour just go onto Oriental Travel Company site and check out. Rest of tour hotels Grand Noble hotel Xi'an,Crown Plaza Panda Garden Chengdu,Century cruise ship,Yangtze river,Grand Mercure Zhongha Shanghai

Arrived to the hotel 9 pm the room i reserved was not available so they decided to downgrade me, after i protested they let me wait an hour and half until this issue was resolved,
It seemed they just couldn't care less even though i am a gold member.
No bell boy around to help with the luggage.
the room was clean, the shower wasn't working proper it had a leak ans spraying water all over the place, this was my second time at this hotel the first time was about two years ago the service was also bad back then but i hoped it changed for the better and igt seems it just got worse.
this hotel gives a bad name to the crowne plaza chain.

I recently spent five nights at the Crowne Plaza U-Town and was very happy with the hotel. My room was quite large, very clean, very modern and well appointed. The pool is great for swimming laps (although note that you must have a bathing cap to swim and to buy one from the hotel costs 40 yuan). I didn't use the fitness centre, but it was a decent size and had all the standard equipment. I found the buffet breakfast to be excellent and it had the best selection of all the hotels I stayed in on my tour. I ate at the hotel restaurant one evening and it was fine. There is an ATM in the lobby which is a good source for getting yuan and the hotel staff were happy to help change some bills as well.

The hotel is attached to a mall, which is interesting to browse if you have some time to kill. There is a food court and some restaurants in the mall (including a Starbucks). There's a supermarket about a block away from the hotel and a Walmart grocery store about 2 blocks away -- good for stocking up on bottles of water beyond the two free small bottles the hotel provides.

If you're a tourist, the hotel is a bit far from the major tourist attractions -- especially given the traffic conditions in Beijing. I was on a tour so it didn't matter to me, but if I was travelling on my own, I might prefer to be closer to the Forbidden City. If you have time, I do recommend visiting the nearby Fork Museum/ DongYue Daoist Temple - it was a fascinating (and quiet) place to while away a couple of hours.

Hotel is nice. Has wifi in the rooms. Overhead shower leaked horribly, dumping about a gallon of water on the floor. Decent sized room for Beijing. Nice exercise room. Pretty good area, lots of reasonable eating options in the mall next door--Blue Frog if you need some Western food. 7-11 to the right and across the street. Only odd thing is the taxi driver from the train station did not know where it was even with the address written in Chinese. He had me call the hotel so he could talk with them. Taxi driver coming back from Great Leap Brewery also did not know where it was.

Stayed for 4 nights at start of China tour. The hotel has a huge atrium lobby with comfy chairs etc. Room was very well appointed with 2 chairs and large bathroom with modern fititngs. Location appeared to be in business district so not a lot to do in the immediate area although taxis are very cheap. Breakfast selection was immense - from fruit, pancakes and cakes, asian, cooked breakfast etc. Main issue we faced was with the concierge where there was a definite issue with understanding english. We wanted to see a show and tried for 2 nights to arrange this through the concierge but without success. Coffee and cakes in the lobby were great - but expensive as 15% service charge added to inflated prices. Shopping centre appeared to be newly opened and so lots of empty shops but good for a quick browse - food court in basement was fun and we had ice creams here.
